She's such a good friend

We went shopping with a friend and her 4 year old daughter, who happened to look adorable in a skirt I made G several years ago. The four year old announced she needed to go potty and we discovered that the store didn't have a public bathroom. G solved the problem with the following suggestion, "You just pee in your panties and then I'll give you mine and I'll go home commando!"

Planning ahead

G asked, "Mom, do you have show and tell in college?" "No. Why?" "Because I was thinking that if we did, I could puke in this pickle jar and save it until I go to college and then I could take it to show and tell and say,"I've had this since I was NINE years old!" Eww...

She's on a roll

The girls had pickle spears with lunch today. M picked a seed out of hers and asked what would happen if she planted it. I told her nothing. She responded,"oh, so it wouldn't grow a pickle tree?"

Observant little critter

While watching the news with M this morning, we heard a story of some less than intelligent person that committed a crime. I called him an idiot. M looked at me and seriously said, "Mom, they're everywhere!"

Aging well?

We decorated the Christmas tree today which always involves a great deal of reminiscing as the girls see all the familiar ornaments again. G pulled out the ornament from "Our First Christmas" that contains our wedding picture from just under 18 years ago. She looked at it and let out a squeal, "Wow Dad, you had HAIR!! AND Grandpa glasses!" Then, to add just a bit more, A piped in, "it's like you're young and old, all at the same time!"
